Other than that one comment she had nothing but positive things to say about Radwanska. This board takes things out of context more then The Sun Newspaper

I saw the interview this morning on British Eurosport. It was with Annabel Croft.
Hingis did agree with Annabel Croft that Radwanska has improved especially her 1st serve but she did say something like "she needs to at least win a Slam first before you compare us" - I knew there was gonna be a thread on GM about this!

She wasn't really that complimentary about Radwanska at all...

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

Really, when she says something like this it only feels that she's afraid of comparing her game to Aga's. Why else would she say she needs to win a slam? If Hingis considers herself so much better then slams don't matter, it's her game they're talking about.

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

Because she probably thinks that Hagatha isn't fit to shine her shoes, let alone being put in the same sentence as her when it comes to tennis talent?

Hingis is such a sour cow, but she usually gets it spot on when it comes to shading the tours biggest vultures.

Game, Set & Mats begins in 10 minutes, perhaps they'll have the interview again in the show.

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

Wow, I am surprised at her reaction.
I thought she likes being compared to Aga, not Caro.

This reaction was unncessarily abrupt.

But do you think this rebuke was really necessary?
She did not need nor have to go that far

Martina of late 2002 was out of shape, serve-less and could not hit the ball harder than a 12 year old. This coming from a Martina fan. Martina pre-2002 is the vintage Martina that should never be compared to Aga and would absolutely wipe the floor against the big hitters of today.

Will you then come up with this nonsense than Serena and Venus were lucky to win their slams, because this fantastic player hadn't arrived yet when Serena and Venus dominated and call their domination a 'transition period' before this amazing new champion appeared?
Serena has won slams between 1999 and 2012, Venus between 2000 and 2008. They dominated for years whereas Hingis won 3 of hers in one year and all between 1997-99. It could be like Hewitt who won a couple of slams between Sampras and Fed - Hingis won some between Graf and Williams sisters

Like she wiped the floor with the big hitters in her comeback?

At times, yes. She basically routined all the top 50 ranked power players (when she wasn't extremely injured, hence her defeats against the likes of Mirza a week after defeating them 6-1 6-0 ), and definitely didn't struggle against the top power players (Venus, Sharapova, Davenport)
